PINK SATURDAY

I haven't been to any vide greniers or boot fairs in ages, so I had no new pink acquisitions to show you. But........ I had a look through my collection of mostly Victorian cards and found some beautiful pink roses to show you! They are 19th Century Christmas and New Year cards, and it does seem strange to me today that they used summer flowers etc for their cards and not Santas or Angels or nativity scenes.

Here they are -




And while I was in a pink frame of mind, I made a little tag as well. This one is special to me for reason - almost two years ago, my wonderful bloggy friend and gifted artist Diane from Diane Knott's Musings sent me a little pressie. I had just started making very basic tags and had great admiration for her tags, so she sent me one along with a tag making kit. I had kept this kit all this time, not wanting to use it all up, but I finally decided that sooner or later I would make a display with all my own tags, and I very much wanted a tag made from her kit to be part of that display.

Do you remember some of the bits on this tag, Diane? -

I had to scan the tag in, because it was too dark to take photographs.

If you want to immerse yourself in more pinkness, hop over to How Sweet The Sound!

Happy Pink Saturday! Toodlepip xxx
